The Collected Plays of Chaim Potok by Chaim Potok

The Collected Plays of Chaim Potok by Chaim Potok

Editor, Introduction: Rena Potok
Contributors: David Bassuk, Carol Rocamora, Aaron Posner

While Chaim Potok is most famous for his novels, particularly his first book The Chosen (1967)—which was listed on The New York Times bestseller list for 39 weeks and sold more than 3,400,000 copies—he also wrote plays, which are collected and published here for the first time. Rena Potok edited the collection and wrote the introduction. This book features all five of Potok’s plays, production notes on each of the plays, prefaces by the directors, and the transcript of a post-performance discussion on Out of the Depths featuring Chaim Potok and Prof. David Roskies, which appears for the first time in print, in this volume.
